I'm not a fan of generic canned goods, but due to the current economic condition in this household, I've taken to buying them. Yesterday, I tried opening a can of potatoes--those little round ones that fry up so easily--and I found I couldn't get the can opener to pierce the top. A few tries later, it finally bit through.
I'm not a fan of generic writing either but do it often.
Do you ever find yourself throwing together an article and sending it off without letting it sit and boil a few days? My first draft lands on the editor's desk---and into the trash.
I've been trying hard this past year to write quality work and not a poor imitation of something it could be, even if it means I send out less.
How's your writing? Are you sending generic or the real deal?
